right now. you do not have a budget plan that enables you to do it. obama will not come out with his own plan. that style does not change. he wants the senate and simpson and bowles and the business leaders to have a plan which he will embrace, and that is when you have this moment at the white house where he has got all these people, tom coburn on one side, simpson and jimmy dimond and jeff immelt on the other side, saying we need to move forward, some of these things i find unpalatable, but now speaker boehner, what are you going to do? when will that plan be there? it ought to be there now, presumably. their whole idea is we emerge with this right after the election, but my guess is within a week we will see obama trying to lay the groundwork for making this happen. >> you mentioned the gang of 40 and the gang of eight. these are key -- >> the gang of eight is an expanded version of the gang of six. i like the gang of three. >> who? >> tom coburn, saxby chambliss, mike crapo, we have kent conrad, who is still there, and dick durbin, and mark warner, and they have added another dem

that the election gives him the mandate to raise taxes on the rich? caller: i think obama should take less pay too and all the crooks in the white house and the government. that's my feeling. host: all right. we're going to move on to jay in asheville, north carolina. jay makes between $50,000 and $ hundred,000 a year. jay, you're on the "washington journal." caller: thank you for taking my call. i don't believe the election gave the president a mandate for much of anything. it was a pretty slim popular vote differential. however, as far as taxes, i would like to see the government tax derivative transactions from the banks. now, you're looking at $700 trillion in derivative transactions, both sales and purchases. a 1% tax on that would give them plenty of money. i think they should leave capital gains and interest alone. thank you. host: thank you. our next call comes from tarboro, north carolina, dana, making between $100,000 and $250,000 a year. go ahead. caller: good morning, sir. thank you very much for answering my call. i'd like to share with you -- i don't know how to get this

think of this concern now among many on the right that john boehner some of his comments yesterday about compromise i'm not going to move to try to roll back obama care anymore. maybe parts of it. is he kind of giving a stiff arm to the tea party at this point? >> i'm not sure what his intent was. he is not here to speak for himself. this party has benefited because of the grass roots conservative movement that moved in 2009. some have called it the tea party. that brought us a republic victory in 2010. in the house it brought us some victories in the senate. it has continued to benefit the party in the 2012 election cycle. the fact that we sustained some defeats in part because we betrayed some of our principles as a party doesn't mean we should retreat from these conservative principles. itens 'we embrace them whole partiedly. the president came out today and he said i will compromise but basically taxes are going up on the rich. rates are going to group. and that's what the people wanted. meanwhile our people come out and say well, revenues are on the table. i just think the dem
